Not enough Lurking Popes are spawning. Also, getting trapped in the Easter egg room is possible.
A downloadable game
Swamp Kid is a tiny, stark game borne of learning, experimentation and collaboration. We feel it has a few kernels of entertainment to share. Allow me to sizzle it for you:
- 1-bit base art punched up with some simple but effective post filters
- evocative music from Three Ribbon Studios
- an inscrutable but coherent setting
- creepy-ass wasp sound effects
- see and hear what is there in 5 minutes or less
Although deeply flawed and downright broken in several important respects, it does have a few small, beautiful elements. We hope you find some small value of your own in it.
